Well, my shoes, they come from singapore,
My flashlights from taiwan,
My tablecloths from malaysia,
My belt buckles from the amazon.
You know, this shirt I wear comes from the philippines
And the car I drive is a chevrolet,
It was put together down in argentina
By a guy makin thirty cents a day.
Well, its sundown on the union
And whats made in the u.s.a.
Sure was a good idea
til greed got in the way.
— Bob Dylan, Union Sundown
